1. Ingestion of Statfjord A crude oil from the North Sea has no apparent effect on the metabolic rate of ducks (Jenssen, 1989). This may be because this particular oil does not affect plasma concentrations of thyroid hormones and enzyme activities in the mixed function oxidase (MFO) system of ducks. 2. To test this hypothesis, plasma concentrations of thyroid hormones (thyroxine and triiodothyronine), and levels of hepatic cytochrome P-450 and enzyme activities (NADPH cytochrome C reductase and… CONTINUE READING
